This book was first published in 1955. This work deals with the human remains (of the first millennium BC) from the late Sir Henry Wellcome's excavation at Jebel Moya in the Sudan between 1911 and 1914, and it is the anthropological complement of Mr Frank Addison's two volumes on the archaeology of the site, which appeared in 1949. While its primary object is to determine the physical types represented by the ancient Jebel Moyans and their links with other African peoples, this book formed a comprehensive guide to method in physical anthropology. Formulae for predicting the capacity of the crania by Trevor and Bawa are given, and statures are reconstructed from the regression equations for limb bones of Trotter and Gleser. The authors also explore the racial affinities of the inhabitants of Jebel Moya, known as Generalized Distance Statistic.
